View Full Version : Gpu speed or Memory

Here is a question to ask with the 512mb Geforce 6800's coming out? Would you buy a video card with a faster gpu in the 256mb variety (BFG OC video cards) or go for the higher ram capacity but slower gpu speeds?

GPU clock & esp for nVIDIA cards .. they seem to be more fillrate limited , so increasing the core clock speed yielded better results as i experianced.

the mem clock will most likely affect the result at highest res / AA where you usually get mem bandwidth limited , but the core clock will ensure better performance in any setting .
